General Nursing Council of Zambia (GNCZ) wishes to distance itself from an article circulating on social media concerning examination percentage pass rates attributed to various nursing and midwifery training colleges and universities purported to have been written by GNCZ. The article in question is fake and therefore, the work of a liar who is mascarending as a nurse and spokesperson of GNCZ, meanwhile, not. Therefore, the article should be ignored with the contempt it deserves, since GNCZ has not yet released any examination results for nurses and midwives.
To the person who authored it and all those individuals helping him/her in spreading the same fake news through various WhatsApp groups and other online platforms without first verifying the same with GNCZ, be informed that GNCZ is doing everything possible to trace you, and once discovered you will be disciplined if you are a nurse or midwife, since the behaviour is unprofessional and in conflict with the provisions of the Nurses and Midwives Act No. 31 of 1997. Thank you.
